He believes that marriage for LGBT people is against God's plan , he has been dragging his feet on fixing sex abuse, he has said that women can never be priests in the Catholic church.

BROOKLYN BORN BELIEVER - March 10, 2017 I've often thought about the question of what God's will is regarding married priests in the Roman Catholic Church.

It bothers me that some Catholics don't have access to the Eucharist because of the lack of priests in poor, undeveloped countries. I've been active in the Church my whole adult life, in different roles and I've known some very religious married men of exemplary character and virtue who ...http://brooklyn-born-believer.blogspot.com/2017/03/what-does-holy-spirit-want-pope-francis.html

But never did it cross ...http://www.bigccatholics.com/2017/03/is-pope-francis-papacy-in-crisis.html

Deaconesses: Are We Asking the Right Questions? (Contribution) CLERICAL WHISPERS - February 21, 2017 When it was announced that the Vatican would open a commission into the question of women deacons, my initial response was unenthusiastic.

That is to say, ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2017/02/deaconesses-are-we-asking-right.html

It seemed familiar, but not from church...yet I ...http://platytera.blogspot.com/2017/02/a-southern-catholic-thing.html
